The Black Cat

Wayward Arts Magazine asked TAXI to design an issue of their magazine under the theme of obsession. The concept was to illustrate Edgar Allan Poe's short story 'The Black Cat', the dark tale of an alcoholic man who becomes obsessed with a black cat.

I was responsible for designing the cover of the magazine along with the first spread that matched the beginning of the story of a man in jail for a murder aided by his obsession with a black cat. I worked closely with illustrator Feline Zegers to create a spread that would reveal more once folded together.
